  • Odin Sphere hits you twice with the deaths of Ingway and Mercedes. If you go for the bad ending by pitting : Mercedes against Darkova, they just twist that knife.
    • Hell, this troper was tearing up with just one line - "You promised you'd come back..."
      • This troper cried for almost every single boss battle in the Bad Ending, and you have to play through every combination in order to unlock the last scene and find out what happened to Cornelius and Velvet. Just a few that made her shake and cry: Cornelius versus Gallon, where even after defeating him, King Gallon keeps regenerating and explains that he can't be killed because of a curse placed on him in the Netherworld, and proceeds to swallow an exhausted, broken spirited Cornelius whole. Oswald versus King Onyx, where Onyx provokes Oswald into a rage that makes him try to use his Shadow form too much too quickly and he transforms into a mindless Revenant (i.e. yet another shadowy victim of the Belderever) who wanders off groaning Gwendolyn's name. And, of course, the Bad Ending, where you see Myris standing on what was the peak of Horn Mountain, only the oceans have risen so high that almost the entire mountain is underwater, and as "the last piece of land in Erion" crumbles beneath her, Myris prays that someone she loves will be spared and cries out, "This is a terrible ending! Who would wish for this?" before burying her face in her hands in grief and the screen fades to black...
        • This troper was just about driven to tears at the memory of that ending.
        • Wanna know what's worse? The Good Ending presumably has the exact same thing happen to Myris. The only difference is there were four survivors of the apocalypse instead of zero.
  • Even Mercedes's good ending can count as one because she dies believing she failed. It isn't until she reveals her true name and the Oh Crap from Onyx that the player gets tears of joy instead.
  • Odin's death at the end. The once mighty king, now a broken old man, has to watch as his entire kingdom falls apart around him. As the Halja surround him, he sees his daughter Griselda's ghost appear before him. Odin spends his final moments apologizing to his daughter for not being a better father and embraces her one last time. Then the Halja strike...
